Rojo, San Pedro, Ambergris Caye

Azul Resort
North Beach
San Pedro , Ambergris Caye
Tel: 501 226 4012's insider take:

The appetizers at this open-air, beachside restaurant are so addictive—and so generously sized—that there's a serious risk of not getting to your main course. Two of particular note: the hummus and pita plate, which (perhaps thanks to the extra-kicky, imported zaatar) rivals anything you'd get in the Middle East; and the fried plantains taste as if they were prepared by an old Cuban woman who has spent her entire life perfecting them. Though in truth, they—like all dishes here—were prepared by the proprietor of Azul Resort: a 38-year-old ex–punk-band manager from San Francisco. Guests from across the island gladly make the boat trip over to experience the improbable alchemy for themselves.

Open Tuesdays through Saturdays 12 to 2 pm and 6 to 9 pm.
